Simple script for getting markdown files in a certain date range (assuming the files use a common Zettelkasten naming convention in which every file starts with YYYY-MM-DD).
if [[ ! $start ]] && [[ ! $end ]]; then
printf "Usage: ./tools/ [start string] [end string]\nEnd string is optional.\n\nExample: To get filenames that come after 2020-03 (anywhere in March) but before 2020-03-29 (assuming files follow this naming convention):\n./tools/ 2020-03 2020-03-29\n";
exit 1;

Example of replacing placeholders in multiple files with sed
# Assuming $title and $name are read from input.
# ...
# Escaping space characters is only necessary within the shell script.
# If you're running the find...sed command directly in the shell, you don't need to escape spaces.
cleanedtitle="${title// /\\ }"
# Replace the placeholders with the title (with escape characters inserted).
